Coronavirus Updates

Law School Coronavirus Resources

The Faculty and Staff portion of the Law School website continues to be updated to include updates specific to Law School operations and resources and tools for faculty. You will need to use your ND NetID and password to access this section. 

Law School Access

Access to Eck and Biolchini

Eck Interior Suites
Interior suite doors are locked during the work day and require card access. Signs are on the suite doors directing you who to contact for access.  

Classrooms in Eck 
Classrooms are locked to ensure our custodial staff are able to properly disinfect these commonly used spaces, and allow faculty the ability to teach uninterrupted from classrooms.

The library is closed to students.
